Camdyn Andrews has been at the school since grade 8. He is in grade 10 this year and has joined the TAG Foundation from one of the school’s other scholarship programmes.
He is grateful for the continued support and promises to work as hard for the people who are supporting him now as he did in the past.
He was a member of the under-16A rugby team as a centre last year and has been named in the Reds pre-season training group. “Unfortunately, I am injured and undergoing rehab. So, although I am doing the running, I can’t make any contact and it’s unlikely that I will be ready for the start of the season.
“Ever since I arrived here it’s been my dream to be called up to the stage when the first Reds team of the season is announced,” he said. “That’s not going to happen this year, but I am going to work hard as soon as I am able to and I hope to make it onto the bench and into the team as the season goes on.
“I have two more years after this one and I know if I am patient I will get my chance.”
Camdyn says that, on the day he arrived, he knew this school was for him. “I got goose bumps at those war cry practices and I knew I wanted to be part of the special brotherhood that we have here.”
He would be playing basketball now, if he were not injured and he describes himself as a “pretty quick” 100m and 200m runner who turns out for the school’s B team.
He realises that schoolwork is the most important thing and admits he could be doing better there. “I am getting help from the school and I’m determined to improve. That’s my dream for the year: five caps for the Reds and a 60% plus average.”
The TAG Foundation is right behind him in that.
